Take this stone
create a beginning
touches more points
as it moves
a sunken piece of mass
As you move forward what is it in the past that propelled you? Fear, a challenge, a friend, an enemy, money, debt…?
Was your move forward physical, spiritual?
Alone I never feared change or forward motion. For me “Forward” is a march toward adventure. As a mother, that move forward presents a different challenge. The ripple of the circle in the water reminds me of the move forward. It’s a challenge when it involves others (those we love). There are edges of the circle (consequences) I cannot see or foresee. The best I can do is hope (and pray) that those I love will weather the forward moving ripples in their paper boat of life.
HOW do the ripples inspire you???
WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge: In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture that says FORWARD to you.
Perhaps it’s a path you yourself have taken, the building where you’re starting a great new job, or the curve of your partner’s pregnant belly. It could be an image that shows a physical move, or something that evokes a major life change. We look forward (ha!) to your interpretations.
